    I really like the Swaggers and the books by Stephen Hunter- can anyone recommend a similar story/author?

    Try "Hard Rain".

    The books by A J Quinnell are very good, but hard to find. Despite "Man on Fire" being made into two horrible movies he has greater popularity outside the USA. Very accurate.

    "Hard Rain" and it's sequal "Rain Fall" are set in Japan, so I think there is one mention of a pistol (a Glock) and it doesn't even get used. But the books are excellent. You will become a Scotch drinker afterwards :)

    Andy McNab is very good, probably has the best credentials of any thriller writer. Michael Wynn has some pretty good gun stuff in his books. Vince Flynn is a little pulpy (but so is Hunter nowadays). Brad Thor is another decent thriller writer. All these guys have linear books, so it would help to start with the first one they published.

    Checkout any of the books by Vince Flynn. I just read all of his work after reading Hunter.
